Primary Hyperoxaluria Understanding
Primary Hyperoxaluria: Overview
Primary hyperoxaluria (PH) is a group of rare genetic metabolic disorders that are characterized by the accumulation of a substance known as oxalate in the kidneys and other organ systems of the body. Affected individuals lack functional levels of a specific enzyme that normally prevents the accumulation of oxalate. There are three main types of PH – PH types I, II, and III – differentiated by the specific enzyme that is deficient. In the kidneys, excess oxalate binds with calcium to form a hard compound (calcium oxalate) that is the main component of kidney and urinary stones. Common symptoms include the formation of stones throughout the urinary tract (urolithiasis) and kidneys (nephrolithiasis) and progressively increased levels of calcium in the kidneys (nephrocalcinosis). PH type I is caused by changes (mutations) in the AGXT gene. PH type II is caused by mutations in the GRHPR gene. PH type III is caused by mutations in the HOGA1 gene. A diagnosis of PH is based upon identification of characteristic symptoms (e.g. chronic stone formation), a detailed patient history, a thorough clinical evaluation and a variety of specialized tests. X-ray examinations can reveal the presence of kidney stones or calcium oxalate deposits in tissue. Computed tomography (CT) scanning, a specialized imaging technique, uses a computer and x-rays to create a film showing cross-sectional images of certain tissue structures such as kidney tissue. CT or MRI can detect the severity of systemic oxalosis by imaging the retina, heart, and bone in greater detail. Certain medications may be used to treat individuals with PH including potassium citrate, thiazides, magnesium, or orthophosphates. These medications in combination with water intake can further reduce the risk of calcium and oxalate crystallization but often do not entirely prevent stone formation or kidney failure.

Primary Hyperoxaluria Emerging Drugs Chapters
This segment of the Primary Hyperoxaluria report encloses its detailed analysis of various drugs in different stages of clinical development, including phase II, I, preclinical and Discovery. It also helps to understand clinical trial details, expressive pharmacological action, agreements and collaborations, and the latest news and press releases.
Primary Hyperoxaluria Emerging Drugs
To address Primary Hyperoxaluria (PH), OxThera has taken a bacterial strain isolated from the human gut and developed a live biotherapeutic product candidate. Oxalobacter formigenes is an anaerobe, non-pathogenic bacterium which exclusively uses oxalate as the energy source. Administration of the bacteria at pharmacological doses to PH patients is hypothezised to promote active, incremental secretion of oxalate into the gut where it is subject to degradation and enteric elimination. This highly innovative approach reroutes oxalate elimination to the gut, thereby reducing the high oxalate burden on the kidneys. Oxabact is being evalauated in Phase III stage of development for the treatment of Primary Hyperoxaluria.
DCR-PHXC: Dicerna Pharmaceuticals
Nedosiran (formerly referred to as DCR-PHXC) is the only RNAi drug candidate in development for primary hyperoxaluria (PH) types 1, 2 and 3 and is Dicerna’s most advanced product candidate utilizing the proprietary GalXC™ RNAi technology platform. Nedosiran is designed to inhibit the lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) enzyme – an enzyme that catalyzes the final step in a common pathway resulting in oxalate overproduction in patients with PH1, PH2 and PH3. Dicerna is evaluating the safety and efficacy of nedosiran in Phase III clinical trial in patients with all known forms of PH as part of its PHYOX clinical development program. In November 2014, Arbutus signed a licensing and collaboration agreement with Dicerna Pharmaceuticals, Inc., to utilize the proprietary LNP delivery technology exclusively in Dicerna’s primary hyperoxaluria type 1 (PH1) development program.
